Last week, we saw what many players have been complaining about for years: Capcom finally stopped shirking the issue and officially announced Dragon’s Dogma 2. It’s a big day that fans have been waiting for since the original game launched in 2012.
It seems that this announcement has once again got the world excited about this niche series. Over the weekend, we saw Dragon’s Creed hit its highest concurrent player count in six years on Steam. The game drew more than 6,582 players on June 19 — something that hasn’t happened since February 2016, when the title dropped from nearly 10,000 players.
If that doesn’t show a strong interest in the series, nothing will. It might also help that the game is on sale now; you can buy the Dark Arisen version of the game (ergo: full version) for £3.84/$5 – an absolute bargain at 84% off the list price. The sale will run until June 23rd.
The game is also part of the Summer 2022 Capcom Bundle on Humble Bundle – which currently has nearly 200,000 copies sold. Monster Hunter World, Devil May Cry, Street Fighter 5 and Dragon’s Dogma on sale together? You spoil us, Capcom.
As for the sequel, series director Hideaki Itsuno will be returning to helm Dragon’s Dogma 2 – but aside from this little fact, a sign, and the fact that the game is currently in development, we don’t know anything about the game.
If you’re itching to play some Dragon’s Dogma yourself, you’ll be happy to know that the game is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC as a Dark Arisen release that includes expansions and various other technical upgrades and improvements.
We’ve recently reflected on the fact that Dragon’s Creed is the perfect game to play before or after Elden Ring. Click the link to find out why.
